After her son was attacked in 1972 at a gay rights protest, Jeanne Manford started an international movement when she marched with her son in New York's Pride Day parade, carrying a sign that read, "Parents of Gays: Unite in Support of Our Children."  Many gays and lesbians approached her during the parade, begging her to talk to their parents.  She decided to begin a support group with approximately 20 people attending.  Chapters sprang up across the country, and united, forming the Federation of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays.  PFLAG formally incorporated in California in 1982. PFLAG Greater Placer County was founded in 2007, with a small group of parents, allies, and people from the local LGBT community.  The group meets monthly in person or via Zoom and provides support for approximately 30-40 people.  Our educational programs are active throughout the Placer County community.
